THE SWIFT OF PEACE A POETIC, ALLEGORICAL Design by Vincent Darré
For the Martell Cordon Bleu Limited Edition 2024, Maison Martell collaborated with the designer and interior decorator Vincent Darré. He is known for his flamboyant creations which draw on different styles and eras to offer a luxurious, contemporary vision of French decorative arts. When he visited Maison Martell in Cognac as inspiration forthe project, Vincent Darré felt like an explorer discovering an unknown land. He describes it as travelling through time, thanks not only to the illustrations and accounts he found in the archives, but also to the place itself, with its strange and wonderful alchemy.

“I love to set the scene, to dramatize my ideaI always start with a story which I write like a film script, before bringing my concepts to life trough watercolours” - Vincent Darré
